While the famous Ubuntu tablet arrives, we have to settle for reading on tablets with Ubuntu Desktop or through the screen. In these cases there are many alternatives to reading ebooks in a good and effective way, without bothering the computer, in our view or losing what has been read once we have finished reading.
Perhaps the simplest option for reading ebooks on Ubuntu is Caliber, the popular ebook manager that also gave way to Ubuntu some time ago. Caliber has a built-in ebook reader that is capable of reading all known ebook formats. But in addition to Caliber there other options without becoming as compound as an ebook manager. In this case we have the FBReader or Cool Reader application, applications that have their own format but can also read any other ebook format.
Another option is to use the Ubuntu document reader or an alternative one. I mean Evince or an alternative like MuPDF, both are pdf file readers, but currently many ebooks are in this format, so it’s not bad to consider these options either.
There are currently many applications for reading ebooks on Ubuntu
Another alternative if we do not want to use the above solutions from an online reader. In this case we can use any reader of the ebook store where we bought the ebook, Like Amazon Reader Cloud in case of buying from Amazon or Dropbox reader in case of saving it on a virtual hard drive. In any case this option does not require any installation but it will make our web browser heavier than usual.
Finally, as we have indicated in some other tutorial, there is the great Wine option. The famous Windows emulator can also make us run ebook reading apps on our Ubuntu, in which case we just have to install Wine and then the app. It is a bit more dangerous than the other options as in the middle of reading, the program may close unexpectedly but it is ideal for those who find it difficult to adapt to new applications.
Of course, these these are some of the options that exist but they are not allIn many cases they depend on tastes, online stores where we bought the books or just running, but in any case, these alternatives and applications are very good and a great start to find the ideal application to read in Ubuntu Which one do you use? Which of these apps or alternatives would you stick with?
